Data Security & Compliance
Every year security breaches expose businesses to reputational damage, financial penalties, loss of intellectual property and even criminal liability. Enterprise security isn’t something customers can afford to get wrong. Yet it remains one of the most challenging organisational disciplines to understand, implement and maintain.
Kite’s technology portfolio leverages product offerings from market-leading security providers to protect and monitor your organisation’s IT environment. Our vendors ensure your data is protected at all times from the glut of new and ever evolving security threats.
If your network isn’t performing how it should be then neither is your business. Many networks were simply not designed to address the levels of data, the number of applications, the diverse access methods and the different performance requirements that they find themselves handling. Performance degradation of the network and ultimately frustrated users/consumers is a very real issue that faces many network managers.
Kites data optimisation vendors help customers plan for, and manage, the performance of their networks with cost, risk and agility in mind. In addition our solutions ensure that data centres deliver business services faster, more efficiently and more securely while accommodating storage, virtualisation and sustainability requirements.
Authentication plays a vital role within any organisation – securing access to data, whether it resides on the corporate LAN, the end point or in the cloud. Without authentication it would be virtually impossible to ensure a user is who they claim to be.
Evolving business needs around cloud applications and mobile devices, combined with ever more complex threats and the need to reduce costs require new considerations for access control.
Strong authentication refers to systems that require multiple factors for authentication and use advanced technology, such as secret keys and encryption, to verify a user’s identity.
Strong authentication has been around in widespread use for decades. The best example being the use of the ATM card. This requires something the user has (bank card) to be used in conjunction with something they own (their PIN). In order to withdraw funds from the ATM you require both.
The need for strong authentication is greater today than ever before with customers looking for identity and access management solutions that deliver security, simplicity, reduced TCO and choice.
The production of data is increasing at an astonishing rate & proving to be a thorn in the side for most IT decision makers. Experts believe that data generation will be 44 times greater in 2020 than it was in 2009.
Additional storage capacity won’t necessarily solve all the problems. Also not all data is created equally. Different types of organisational data are subject to different regulatory, archiving, performance and availability requirements. No single off-the-shelf approach exists to satisfy all organisational needs. Similarly, backup and disaster recovery (DR) calls for a more strategic approach.
Organisations need help in designing and managing their infrastructure to realise the benefits to be gained from using this data intelligently.
Kite are assisting the channel to realise the value of corporate data by designing and implementing data storage solutions through which data can be properly managed, efficiently stored, readily retrieved and easily used.
